Well- if more and more people hope to get one, I think I should hope to get one also.





(any idea what the average hope time is?)

I thought one's first post was supposed to be something breast-related down in JM.

Interesting wheels for WWII vintage. Red seats and hand grip color cordination is smoothe.

What's the deal on those fender suport thingies though?

Can the learned members advise me, would I be utterly insane to attempt to buy one of these in China and ride it home, to Ireland? (Ignoring for the moment potential licensing, customs, and export issues)

And if so, is utter insanity of that type really a bad thing? I'll guarantee a trip report with lots of pics.

How about the rebuilt CJs with a BMW engine put in them? I'm assuming there's still a lot that can go wrong, final drive etc, but at least the engine would be reliable.

I wouldn't be looking to do it for a few years, possibly five, but currently I'm not up to much mechanically on a bike (no problem learning though).

Or is it just a complete non runner of an idea? Better to get a modern Ural and do it? (Runs into it's own problems with the left vs right hand sidecar thing). I know logically it would make a lot more sense to get a newer, more reliable bike, and probably even scrap the sidecar idea, but when it comes to bikes I've always let my heart rule my head, and I'd love to have one of these bikes, plus the story on how I got it back, at home.

You can buy Chang Jiangs within the UK mate.

Mostly sidevalvers but I think the OHV ones like that one in the photo,too.

Beware they make Dneprs look refined and Urals look space age.

I`d drop that idea of yours if not mechanically clued up and not of a WWID mindset.....and as you infer,the license/insurance/documentation issues would be considerable.

Personally I`d only consider a CJ as a totally 'dark side' occasional pastime item to use any spare time and money on,rather than daily users which my Urals are.

Those "fender suport thingies" to which you refer (always thought the word support had two pps?) have extra large grab handles so that two men can move one of these onboard a retrieval vehicle.

Don't know if THAT information is in this book:

The only reasonable plus points I can think of is I could get one with a right hand side car and it'd be legal to use over here, due to being old enough.

I'd intend to get up to speed on the mechanical side of things (which I need to do anyway) but I can see how it would be a pain if the machine was constantly on the go. Dunno if I'm totally WWID but I've made it through a days riding in Vietnam with a combination of string and twigs rigged up to let me use the clutch and front brake after a spill if that counts!

That definitely comes across strongly from even the biggest CJ enthusiasts. It's a slightly annoying situation - I'd love to do a long trip by sidecar, but I'd want to keep it afterwards, and the right hand / left hand thing would come into play.

Thanks for the info!

long CJ ride

Nope, not a bad idea at all. I've had quite a few customers buy our bikes over the internet, fly in, and ride them back to the U.S. and Europe. (Obviously shipping the bike to the U.S. from Europe)
I rode my bike from the Isle of Man to Beijing a few years back.
Anyway, you can go to my web site for more details.
Regds,
